      Appearance (3)
      Bright deep red. Huge dense head. Some chunks due to my clumsy pour.
      Aroma (4)
      Grainy, caramelly, spicy, fruity — one of the most complex beer aromas I've experienced.
      Mouthfeel (10)
      Medium very fizzy body. Lots of caramel and lots of alcohol. Lots of spice and lots of Brettanomyces. Grassy and fruity and bitter and tasty and magnificent.

      The 30cl bottle fetches $17 here.
